Converting Clipboard Data into Alternative Formats

When you paste an item from the Clipboard into an Office document, the Office application examines the item to determine its data format—simple text, HTML, formatted text (so-called Rich Text Format), worksheet data, or one of many picture formats, for example. Before the Office application pastes the Clipboard contents, a negotiating procedure takes place in which the application attempts to discover the format that's most appropriate for the current contents.

In Office 2000, the default format for transferring Clipboard data between applications is HTML (page 175). So, if you copy formatted text or a worksheet range from one Office application to another, Office uses the HTML formatting tags to ensure that tables, text formats, fonts, and other formatting translate accurately.
